Daily Express: Fletchers Client Pursues Hospital After Being Left Unseen for Hours Following Stroke

8th August 2013

The Daily Express recently investigated how critically ill patients are often left unseen and untreated in emergency wards, sometimes for hours at a time. Frequently, this results in patients being left with debilitating symptoms. Unfortunately, if they had been treated in a proper and timely manner, the patients would not have suffered serious long term health problems, or would have been substantially better for being seen on time.

Our client Mrs Horsewood, whose claim with Fletchers Solicitors features in the article, was left unattended on a hospital trolley in a corridor for over two hours following a stroke. She is now paralysed down her right hand side, and unable to speak or eat. As her husband says in the article, “It should not have happened. If she had been fast-tracked, as she should have been, and not treated in a corridor, we believe she could have made a good recovery”.
